The only diet that works for my husband.

My husband had an operation about 2 years ago to have part of his intestine removed. He had been on all kinds of medications before that but even those weren't working all day great anymore, plus he was starting to get many side effects from the drugs (water retention, frail bones, and more!). Just months after the operation the pain returned to his abdomen. This time, he was determined to learn more on the topic, read many books, went to see homeopaths, read more books and tested a few different diets. One of the first one was the SDC diet, as described in this book, which is a bit tough if you're not yet convinced of the effectiveness. He tried a few other diets which did help a bit but the problem was still there. When he finally came back to Elaine Gottschall's diet and stuck to it for a bit longer, he became totally healthy. He's now strong, full of energy, and totally off any medications. Once in a while he cheats a bit (garlic bread, or ice cream!!).
This is totally worth reading. Very informative and will change the life of your loved ones. The diet can be a very balanced in every way (vitamins, proteins, minerals).
Thank you Elaine for giving my husband hope and his life back.

For those of us who are relieved to have access to information which empowers us to take care of ourselves, this book is a godsend. With it I have been able to completely regain my health without the use of medications. It is a tragedy that this information is not available to everyone with digestive disorders, so that we all can make informed personal choices about how we wish to approach our treatment. People with the determination to regain their health will almost certainly benefit from learning about this diet.
